Mustang Coaching Staff
Head Coach Scott Tschetter
Scott Tschetter has been the Mustangs’ head coach for the past three seasons since he started up the college’s men’s volleyball program.
Tschetter led Morningside to a victory in its varsity debut when the Mustangs defeated Culver-Stockton 3-1 on Jan. 10, 2015, in Sioux City.
He helped lead the Mustangs to a first place finish with a 6-4 record in the GPAC/KCAC Division of the NAIA Midwest Conference during the 2016 campaign. The Mustangs finished the season with five victories in their final eight matches and reached the semifinals of the NAIA Midwest Conference’s post-season tournament.
Morningside finished 11-17 in its 2015 debut season and went 10-23 in 2016 and 11-23 in 2017 while playing a demanding schedule where the majority of the Mustangs’ opponents were nationally ranked teams.
Tschetter was previously the head women’s volleyball coach for 16 seasons at Iowa Lakes Community College, where his teams compiled a record of 444-271. Tschetter guided the Lakers to six National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Tournament appearances over his last eight years at the school. Tschetter, a six-time NJCAA District Coach of the Year, led Iowa Lakes to six regional championships and four regional runner-up finishes.
Tschetter’s coaching career began at North Iowa Community High School, where he was the school’s head wrestling coach from 1990-97 and the head volleyball coach from 1994-97. Tschetter had an 80-20 career record and led North Iowa to its first-ever conference championship as the school’s head volleyball coach.
Tschetter is a 1980 graduate of Wartburg College.
